URGENT DENTAL CARE INFO
SICK NOTE'S / MED 3 REQUESTS 18.03.2020
National guidance from today (13.03.2020):
Anyone who has a new persistent cough or fever should self isolate for seven days, regardless of suspected cause.
Most cases of chest infections and fever settle without antibiotics, so you should only seek medical assistance if seriously unwell, and in that case by 111. You should NOT call 111 if you have mild symptoms.
If you are self isolating, DO NOT COME TO THE SURGERY for any reason including routine check ups and blood tests.
If you need to speak to doctor or nurse about another issue but have a cough or fever please make this clear to the receptionist when telephoning the practice.
Everything we are doing is following national guidance, to protect as many patients and staff as possible and to limit the spread.
Please note: we cannot diagnose coronovirus at the surgery, and have no access to the test.
For further information visit:
We are concerned that patients seeking information on coronavirus are being directed to call 111 rather than use NHS 111 online. NHS 111 is experiencing very high call volumes.

WELCOME TO WELTON FAMILY HEALTH CENTRE
We are a two partner practice based in Welton covering an area of approx 135 square miles. We offer on site dispensing services to all patients who live more than one mile from a chemist’s shop. We work as a partnership and patients may consult any of the doctors in the practice. We also employ the services of additional doctors as needed to maintain adequate medical cover. We offer a full range of services including child health, maternity services, minor surgery, disease management clinics, travel health and family planning.
We work with a team of qualified staff who help us to provide a wide range of services. All partners regularly attend postgraduate refresher courses and are keen to keep abreast of current developments in medicine. We are committed to the training and development of all staff and regularly hold training sessions.
Our main surgery site was extended in 1998 to offer improved facilities and comfortable surroundings. Parking facilities exist to the front left hand side of the surgery and we have suitable access for disabled patients & visitors. We are part of Lincolnshire West CCG and have representation on various committees and subgroups associated with this.
Our Aim Is To....
“Maintain and improve the health of people who live locally, providing high quality health care services which are flexible and responsive to their assessed needs, in a friendly, professional and efficient manner, working with a team approach”
Training Practice - In May 2010 we were pleased to pass our assessment for the Practice to become a training practice. GP Registrars are fully qualified doctors who hope to pursue a career in General Practice and as part of this need to gain experience in a surgery.
